3Space

3Space is a London-based charity that works with landlords and leaseholders to unlock the value of empty commercial properties -- making them available for a limited period to other non-profit organisations free of charge for start-up projects benefiting the community.

3Space has managed the short-term use of property in 45 buildings across the UK since 2010, giving space to 140 charities, community groups and social enterprises. Landlords benefit from reduced insurance, maintenance, business rates and security costs and can take their properties back at short notice.

3Space provides a scalable approach to the management of vacant commercial space, reducing waste while delivering tangible social and economic benefits and driving urban renewal.

BIG - Bjarke Ingels Group

Superkilen, lead-designed by Danish architects BIG, is a modern park -- with trails for pedestrians and cyclists, and outdoor recreation areas -- in one of the poorest and most ethnically diverse districts in Copenhagen.

The conceptual starting point is the park’s division into three zones and colors – the red square, the black market and the green park. To celebrate the area’s multi-cultural heritage, BIG has worked with the local community to source street furniture, play equipment, sculpture and lighting from the 62 countries that were originally home to the district’s residents.
